Q&A Seminar

Make Me Mobile Charity's frequently

 asked questions!

 

Q. How much of what I donate actually goes toward a van?

A. Make Me Mobile has very low overheads. We estimate that about 97% of the money that you donate will go towards purchasing vans for clients in need. 

Q. What is to stop the client form selling the van?

A. Nothing... but the client can only get the NDIS to modify a vehicle every 10 years.

Contractually:

* Make Me Mobile also has the right of first offer to buy back the vehicle, so we will know when its being sold 

* the vehicle will belong to the client and not the Parents/Guardian/Carer.

Q. Does the NDIS pay the clients vehicle insurance?

A. No.  This needs to be paid by the client from their income or their pension.

Q. Does the NDIS pay the registration fee for the clients van?

A. No but in NSW registration is free for anyone on a pension. Check with your State transport department.

Q. Does the NDIS pay for the servicing of the van.

A. No.  This needs to be budgeted buy the client/parents/guardians/carers from the clients income or pension.  We are looking into this.

Q. When should I apply for Make Me Mobile funding?

A. After your NDIS Modification funding has been approved.

Q. Does it have to be a KIA?

A. Your circumstance will be considered but otherwise yes.

Q. Do I have to be NDIS approved?

A. Yes.  You must be NDIS approved for vehicle modification funding in order to be eligible for Make Me Mobile funding.

Q. How long does it take to get a wheelchair access vehicle?

A.  It can vary. Currently it generally takes 3 months for the modification.  Currently it is taking 5 months to get a KIA into the country.  

Q. Who will be doing the modification?

A. Freedom Motors is our preferred supplier but if they can't keep up with the demand we will be seeking assistance from other modifiers.


Q. What will it cost me?

A. If approved the NDIS will pay for the modification and if approved and we have the funding Make Me Mobile pay for the van . Anything outside these two parameters we cannot comment on.
